    Re: Empty Bottle Support Group 2012

    handle of Makers hit the bin last night. open for about a year, solid performer and will re-appear at a later date -- but it was taking up valuable real estate and I've now got room for maybe two more newbs. I'm thinking maybe Bourye & CEHT Tornado...

    Rough night. The AAA 10 Year TPS Selection bottle is gone. What a great value.

    Any Atlanta natives that know where I can get some AAA 10 yr locally, please let me know.

    How was it? I found some tax stamped 86 proof the other day that I'm looking forward to trying.

    Hi Roc the bib was fantastic. I think this bottle was from the early '70s.
    The nose wasn't it's best quality but it was pleasant, not quite honey and not quite orange extract but like a less sweet almond oil that had dried.
    The taste was like a dark chocolate covered cherry, not a fresh cherry but a bright red one in sugar syrup and as you moved it around in your mouth the char came out. The taste was amazing but not vibrant but it never burned either so you could roll it around to really taste.
    The finish was quick and char again.
    I would drink this everyday. It was young and to the point and didn't change a lot depending on what I would eat. I knew I was going to enjoy it with every reach. I have another bottle from the early '80s but I will wait and see if I can find another bib in my hunting before rushing through the next one like I did this. One of my favorite dusty finds yet.
    I do see a lot of old 86 proof in Los Angeles so if you like it, I could probably direct you to a few places that have it.

    Yeah, I've figured that much . . . I would have definitely seen it by now if it was sold here. That being said, have you ever tried ordering from The Party Source. I've been debating putting in a big order for some AAA and getting a couple additional bottle of their private 4 Roses stuff (the bottle of OBSK I brought back is fantastic). Their website claims they can ship to GA. They were great to deal with in person when I was up there in the spring.

    I've had AAA 10yr shipped from TPS along with their Bowman and FR selections. Shipping's not too bad when it's for 4 bottles, plus no tax.

    TPS is second to none in shipping efficiency. I think their packaging could withstand a nuclear blast. And if you order by early afternoon, it will be shipped the same day. An adult signature is required to receive the package

    GD12 tonight, and a Baby Saz the night before.

    Decisions are ahead, what to open next with the open space?
